7 from 7: Stories for your Tuesday

Good afternoon! We hope you're all ready for tonight's cold temperatures.

1. Cold weather is rolling into East Texas. I'm sure you've noticed! Make sure to watch out for elderly neighbors who may not have heat, for your pets who need a place to sleep out of the cold, and make sure you've got an extra blanket on your bed! Join Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto tonight at 4, 5 and 6 as he tells you exactly what to expect tonight and for the rest of the week.

2. Do you like to shop? Wondering what Black Friday sales will be available to you this year? Here is a slideshow that points you to each store's ad, all in one convenient place.

3. The foster parents of victims of a sex ring in Mineola reached an agreement with authorities on Tuesday morning. Child Protective Services has taken custody of all four children in the home and asked that records not include the names of the teenage children in the case. The children will all be placed together through CPS.

4. Would you like to send holiday greetings to our troops? The holiday season is a time for spreading love to those around us and those who may be thousands of miles away. Each year, thousands of service men and women welcome a little piece of home in the form of a holiday greeting. Here's how you can do it, too.

5. A local fire department shared with us a list of tips for your winter weather safety.  We want everyone in East Texas safe and sound! See how your home matches up to the list, and what simple changes might help keep you and your family safe.

6. "We need help. Nothing is happening. We haven't eaten since yesterday afternoon," pleaded a weeping 81-year-old woman who failed to get a flight out of Tacloban for Manila, the capital, after surviving the horrendous typhoon in the Philippines. Her clothes were soaked from a pouring rain and tears streamed down her face. Read more here.

7. Before you head home this chilly evening, look over this recipe from In the Kitchen with Mama Steph to see if you have all the ingredients for this simple, warm dessert. You're going to want to have it in your oven tonight.

Make sure to jump on your computer or smartphone to watch us live on kltv.com if you're not near your tv this afternoon. We'll be live there at 4, 5 and 6.

See you soon!
